Wounded Warriors ...

I'm ever amazed by the resilience and toughness of our wild trout. When you stop to think about the cycles of drought, flood, fire and other impacts that have occurred over the course of thousands of years, you begin to wonder how they find ways to survive. Add to this the normal predator / prey relationships found in nature and the impact man can impose, the respect for these fish goes up even higher. On a recent trip to New Mexico I caught two wounded warriors in one morning that wore some horrifying scars from recent encounters with predators. In spite of this, a Charlie Boy Hopper didn't get past either of them, and I would have never believed how badly injured they were until I had them in the net. imagine the stories this little warrior might tell. Till next week.... ItsAboutTheFish
